Summary: I really like this motherboard. I upgraded from a Gigabyte that i really liked and was skeptical of the ASRock brand, but I must say, Bravo to ASRock.
Pros: Great hardware for the price point. Has all the new bells and whistles as well as the IDE port I was looking for. Worked right first time booting and hasn't caused any issues yet. I like the OC BIOS. I don't typically OC, but I had to try it, and it worked well with the stock cooler.
Cons: Whilst the manual is large, it could use more explanation on some of the features
Pros: 1) Newegg replaced the first DoA board that I reviewed and gave 1 star. 2) The new motherboard booted right out of the box without any issues whatsoever and touch wood, is functioning impeccable. 3) The over clocking, tweaking options are like pandora's box to people who know what they're doing. ...
Cons: 1) if you plan on using two graphics cards like me, say bye bye to PCI slots. I had to keep out my X-Fi sound blaster :( 2) BIG board.
Pros: This is a good motherboard with some room to grow. BIOS is quite flexible with ability to over clock and adjust power settings. Good bus speed as well as USB 3 interface.
Cons: As another user had mentioned this motherboard could be built better. Maybe ASRock needs to shake up their QA department. It appears that intermittent freezing are integral part of some boards. After 30 days of using I started noticing occasional freezing of my PC and eventually powered down comp...
Summary: My second board arrived to me within two weeks of the start of the RMA process. Slow, but I can;t complain that much. Just be warned this board may have been rushed a bit. If you get a good one it's awesome. If not you will need to RMA. Just watch for sporadic hangups, freezes and the such.
Pros: Well, this board has its ups and downs. I am not a pc gamer by any means. I go for shear power for dollars. The board is impressive in layout, looks good, has all the connections you need, and is 8 core ready. I don't believe that any real difference exist between this board and the 900 series as...
Cons: My first board was sporadic then dead within 21 days. Very disappointing considering cost and the manufacture. Newegg was grateful enough to fullfill a replacement with next day air shipping although I had thrown away the original packaging.
Summary: This board looks beautiful in person and does in fact, require an additional mounting post to install it. The 8-pin power connection is in a little different position so I needed to buy an extension for it, and the Front panel audio header is located just south of the VRM cooler, which is a very odd...
Pros: I wish I knew...
Cons: Understand that this review is not for the board as I received it DOA. This is just after receiving a faulty MSI 890fxa-GD70. I am starting to lose faith in Newegg's quality products. I can't blame them for what the manufacturers fail to do (a proper QA)
Summary: Отличная плата за свои деньги. Я брал ее с amd 4170. Как написал автор ниже,отличная совместимость (единственное мне попалась плата со старой версии биоса,пришлось обновится) Однако есть и минусы.
Pros: Индикация ошибок на плате, Огромное кол-во портов, Наличие usb 3.0
Pros: Качественная элементная база, насыщена дополнительными контроллерами и располагает избыточным набором современных интерфейсов., поддержка повышенной частоты HT-шины и оперативной памяти DDR3-1866
Cons: Да у меня с фирменным софтом что то также не сложилось.
